The de facto paper stamp existed from August 4, 1914 with the abolition of the gold standard as a result of the outbreak of the First World War , although in wartime the name " gold stamp " was often used in official sources.
The concept of “paper stamp” was introduced later to distinguish inflation-prone money from full-weight pre-war gold stamps that were in circulation until August 1914. On banknotes of paper stamps worth more than one billion marks, their denomination was indicated not in numbers, but in words, for example: “ten billion marks”.
In 1923, a paper brand was replaced by a rental mark , 1,000,000,000,000 marks = 1 rental mark (4,2 marks = 1 US dollar ), and in 1924 the Reichsmark was also put into circulation.
